Saturday, January 16, 1pm: Philadelphia Photo Arts Center Presents: Pizza Making and Food Photography with Food Blogger Peggy Paul Casella and Photographer Albert Yee
This month, in collaboration with the Philadelphia Photo Arts Center, COOK welcomes food blogger Peggy Paul Casella and photographer Albert Yee for a two-part workshop on the art of making—and photographing—pizza at home. In the first hour, Casella, author of the blog “Thursday Night Pizza”, will demo two different seasonally inspired pizzas that can be made on even the busiest weeknight. And in the second hour, Yee will guide guests through the process of food photography to get the most out of a photo using things that are probably already around the home. Guests are asked to bring a camera (it can be a smartphone, point and shoot, or SLR) and any burning questions they may have. Yee will go through a brief Photo 101 session to have everybody on the same page with terminology and then guide guests through exercises to help with composition and lighting techniques.
